Providing education services for overseas students


Schools may apply to TASC to be registered to provide education services (courses/s*) to international students who are in Australia on a student visa.

TASC is the designated authority under Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) legislative framework for all school providers and schools' courses, and any English Language Intensive Courses for Overseas Students (ELICOS) and Foundation Program courses they deliver in Tasmania. The designated authority for non-award programs that are not ELICOS or Foundation Programs remains the person responsible under State law. The Australian Government provides details of designated authorities for all sectors on Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS) Contacts

Education and training providers who offer education programs and courses in other sectors (including VET and Higher Education and ELICOS and Foundation programs not offered by schools) should refer to Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS) Contacts to determine which designated authority they need to apply to.

Each provider has a defined scope that lists the courses it is accredited to deliver to overseas students. Please refer to the courses section of this website for details about accrediting the courses you wish to offer.

Current CRICOS providers and courses


Details of providers registered to deliver eduation and training to overseas students in Tasmania and the accredited courses they offer are available on Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS) .

Registration


Registration of providers and courses involves two stages. The first stage is undertaken by the designated authority for that state or territory. TASC is the designated authority under the ESOS legislative framework for all school providers and schools courses and any ELICOS and Foundation Program courses they deliver in Tasmania. TASC is also the designated responsbility for non-award programs that are not ELICOS or Foundation Programs that TASC can register under the law of the State.

The second stage of CRICOS registration is the responsbility of the Commonwealth delegate. The Department of Industry, Innovation, Science, Research and Tertiary Education (DIISRTE) is the Commonwealth delegate in respect to schools. A provider is not registered until both stages of this process have been completed. Once registered, TASC officers will add the provider to the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS) http://cricos.deewr.gov.au/. Details of each course offered and its title, duration and cost are shown on the provider's CRICOS entry.
